Parody Song Title: ## "Cross Product"

Parody Written by: ## Rice Cube & Watt Daddy

A parody about the cross product of two vectors, which is a math thing used to figure out stuff like torque and magnetism.

Got a cross product, check it and see

I got two vectors, it will give me a three

Come on baby, gimme some i's, j's and k's

The cross product, the cross product!

You don't need t'use a TI, to know how to re-define

This here matrix does grow

Describe movement fine, let me draw another line

You wanna know what this new function will show

It's easy to do, we can have a physics class review

Just me and you, I'll show you how to do the right hand rule!

Now we've got cross products, check it and see

For magnetism and electricity

Come on baby, make a new matrix fast

The cross product, the cross product!

You doin' this right? Calculating speed of light, it's denoted by c

But you've got to take the cosine, come on girl, plot the new line

Now see, don't do dot product, that won't get you your degree

Are you smart enough, will you please help me with this torquing stuff?

Did I do it right, do I have to stay up late tonight?

To do cross products, check it and see

Take these vectors and then cosine of phi

Come on baby, see the new vector that's

The cross product, the cross product!

(Solo with calculator and computer noises and Professor Frink)

It's easy to do, we can have a physics class review

Now check this too, you can find this vector's magnitude!

So we've got cross products, check it and see

For magnetism and electricity

Come on baby, you just use your right hand

Get cross product, the cross product!

(Cross product) Do cosine (Cross product) you draw a new line

(Cross product) for these pendulum trials

(Cross product) we know (cross product) info compiled

(Cross product) got a vector to try (cross product) you just draw a new line

(Cross product) In th'Cartesian plane

(Cross product) for your (Cross product) new force range

I got two vectors, it will give me a three

Come on baby, gimme some i's, j's and k's

The cross product, the cross product!

You don't need t'use a TI, to know how to re-define

This here matrix does grow

We probably screwed up a few terms...while both of us are science guys, neither of us actually have a math degree.

I think we have enough Math parodies to put out a compilation album now

Very enjoyable!

this was awesome!

Good one! I liked the reference thrown in to Prof Frink too!

Thanks for the comments. I think cosine is used in dot products, while sine is what's really used in cross products...at least that's what my brother the chemical engineer says.

Well, we've gone from cross-gender parodies to cross products. This is excellent, I'm going to have to forward it to some of my science/math friends!

I do love the Google ad searches that come up to the side :-D Weathervanes, really... :-D

And I have no idea what you are talking about but this was very enjoyable. Nice job.

Three MIT A's for you = 5.0 , 5.0 , and 5.0 ! Well done.

Hey Rice Cube - you were kind enough to read, vote, and comment on my recent parody of Simon and Garfunkel’s “I Am A Rock” called “Leonard Played Spock”, so I’m inviting you to come on over and check out my new parody of “I Am A Rock” called “I Am A Chalk”:

This seems to be pretty well written but like bob pagliaro i have no idea what you're talking about. i gave you 5-4-4

Voted and commented four months ago, see above.

I'm sorry I suck at math and have no idea what a cross product is. I gave you a 4 in funny because later on i'll learn what a cross product is and probably find it hilarious.

Good job, Rice Cube and Watt Daddy! 5's!

I always like a good nerd/geek/tech parody (written a few myself!)

Very nice. You just got yourselves some more 5s, from a fellow geek.

just excellant!

Hell, I liked this one so much I voted for it rather than my own... very clever indeed.

Very good. You didn't screw up any math vocab from where I'm standing. 5's

Great work!

I didn't even think to use Professor Frink's voice for this until you mentioned him. Yeah, it made it even funnier. Damn, now I know why the votes are so close.

I do like science/math parodies .. although I dont always really get the maning..very cleverly executed..

A smart parody. ...and, while I could, as easily, say that in reference to the subject, I'm talking about the writing skills behind it. :)

ABC's Comp.--I was never good at math...544.

(ABC) Been here twice before (see above), still love it!

Really good! (I did get lost in the cosines, but the parody was great)

Though this is even foreign-er to me than most math parodies (nyuk nyuk), I know excellence when I see it. Hot!

Lemme see, cross product is what happens to make those little plastic scottie dogs you buy at Stuckey's roadside shop turn around and buss each other? I knew math was useful somewhere! :-O

I'm still shuddering from the hockey pucks in physics lab. My Chinese TA probably would have laughed all night but it brought back some nasty memories for me. 5,4,4 nonetheless. good job.

Over two months later and I still don't know what a cross product is, how bout that.

(ABC) Rice & Watt - adds up ro "5-5-5" to me, and I don't need to cross-check those numbers. (Good thing, too)
